Hello, I have been deeply concerned regarding unwanted vaginal contact a year ago. I've never had sex, but genital contact was made roughly on my perineum area during an attempted sexual assault. Fear of herpes has been looming, and I discussed the issue with my parents who firmly believe that herpes cannot be contracted through genital contact alone, therefore they don't want to submit me to painful pelvic testing when I am unable to penetrate myself. I understand I may be overreacting but I am deeply afraid. I have had three, very shallow reddish papercuts on my vulvular area, one being on the right side of my clitoral hood and two in my perineum. It burns, but it''s not leaking any liquid. The cuts are reddish, they are not deep and don't show any yellow/green/beige skin to indicate deep splices, and they are not scabbing. Although the fordyce spots (always been there and prominent) seem to be a little irritated. For some background, at this very moment I do have a yeast infection and am debating whether or not to buy boric acid capsules from ebay. Also my vagina IS VERY VERY DRY, I am a younger person but have been having dry vagina with this yeast infection. Lastly, I have been inspecting my genitals every single day because of fear of herpes. I read somewhere that herpes can manifest itself as paper cuts. Most of the ones I saw were very deep splices that showed yellow/beige/greenish that scabbed over. I believe the thin silvers of paper cuts may have shown up from excessive tugging and pulling of the vulva whilst experiencing dryness. Also, I am having some sneezing fits (I went out of town to a grassland today, but being that I'm afraid of contracting herpes, everything seems to be herpes related. I think it was just the grasslands though.)
Please any help is appreciated, I guess what I'm trying to ask is if herpes would show as thin papercuts? I also do have a gyno appointment and even though I'm a virgin they may still want to run a full panel to verify whether I'm telling the truth + Since im new to the clinic.
Also could herpes never scab? Could it never leak? I heard herpes sometimes doesn't do either, and that it's super contagious. Also. should I buy the boric acid from ebay?
